Police to focus on aggressive drivers

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho Transportation Department is teaming up with law enforcement all across the state to target aggressive motorists.
And that includes speeders, tailgaters, drivers who change lanes without signaling and motorists who ignore yellow lights and other traffic signs and signals.
The special enforcement campaign runs this week through April 19.
Cecilia Arritola, with the agency's Office of Highway Operations and Safety, says aggressive driving is a serious problem in the state. She says more than half of all traffic deaths are caused by aggressive drivers.
All week long, police patrols will be extra sensitive to drivers breaking speed limits and other traffic laws.
